Hartenberg Cabernet Shiraz
Spicy, ripe red blend.
A Cabernet-Shiraz blend is complete anathema to the French tradition (and laws) of specific geographical regions sticking to a regimented set of grape varieties. Cabernet belongs to Bordeaux to the west, Shiraz belongs to the Rhone to the east. In the new world, those rules don't exist. If you can grow great Cabernet and great Shiraz, go ahead and blend them! The result here in Stellenbosch is a wine full of ripe dark fruit; plums, blackcurrant, blackberries, with spice from the Shiraz running alongside.
